The Stonesoft IPS-1302 appliance has been designed to protect against advanced threats and evasive attack methods on high-utilized data center and modern corporate networks”, said Tomi Kononow, IPS Product Manager at Stonesoft.
Highest level of protection against Advanced Evasion Techniques
The Stonesoft IPS-1302 offers the highest level of security against Advanced Evasion Techniques (AET) without compromising traffic speed or availability across the network. Evasion techniques are a means to disguise and/or modify cyber attacks to avoid detection and blocking by information security systems. Evasions enable cyber criminals to deliver any malicious content, exploit or attack to a vulnerable system without detection that would normally be detected and stopped. Advanced Evasion Techniques are typically used as part of APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats). While most security systems are rendered ineffective against AETs, the Stonesoft IPS-1302 provides efficient protection against them.
Comprehensive network security
Stonesoft™ IPS-1302 and all other Stonesoft appliances offer comprehensive network security with easy configuration and unified management. This ensures an optimized and scalable solution for any geographically dispersed enterprise deployment.
